Packages lets you create distribution and installation packages.
Who is it for?
Well, imagine you are a software developer who just completed a project and it's time to work on shipping it. Or you are an administrator and you need to deploy a plugin on the Mac computers of your network. Whenever you need to create an installation package or distribution for Mac OS X 10.5 or later, Packages is the powerful and flexible solution you're looking for.
With Packages, you can define which applications, bundles, documents or folders should be part of the payload of your installation packages and
- Added the /Library/Extensions folder to the default payload hierarchy.
- Moved the /System/Library and /Applications/Utilities folders to the advanced payload hierarchy to take into account OS X 10.11 El Capitan's "No trespassing" signs.
- Took into account the most recent OS versions in the OS requirement options.
- OS X 10.5 or later
